Sankey diagrams of woody biomass flows in the European Union

Sankey diagrams of woody biomass flows in the European Union for the years 2009 to 2017 can be downloaded from this page. Starting from primary sources of wood, removals or imports, wood can either feed wood processing industries for the manufacturing of wood-based products or be used for energy production. The woody material transferred across the different transformation steps and among the different subsectors determines complex biomass flows, illustrated with the Sankey diagrams, where the width of each arrow is proportional to the magnitude of the flow.
